Queer Beats – August 7, 2020

Queer Beats with Nikki Header

Welcome back to Queer Beats, your weekly one-stop shop for queer television news! This week, A League of Their Own was ordered to series but, sadly, High Fidelity was cancelled by Hulu.

A League of Their Own

In very good news this week, the new reinterpretation of the beloved movie, A League of Their Own, has been ordered to series by Amazon. For the record, I don’t know if this will be the title of the series, but I have been looking forward to this possible series for SO long because I was a big fan of the movie and also Abbi Jacobson, who is a co-creator. Other cast members include D’Arcy Carden, Roberta Colindrez, Melanie Field, and Kate Berlant, so it’s bound to be good.

Glee

We are all still mourning the loss of Naya Rivera. Heather Morris shared some of her favorite Brittana moments with fans this week:

High Fidelity

Hulu cancelled High Fidelity this week (which was a mistake, in my honest opinion). This remake of the original movie (and book) featured Zoe Kravitz as a bisexual lead and was so good. I’m sad we will not get to see more!

#Luimelia

ATRESplayer announced the premiere date for the second season of #Luimelia: August 16th!

Just going to drop these here…

They also released a new clip to get us even more excited for the new season:

This next post also had me laughing all week. For those who have already watched the first season of the spin-off, you will understand the #Laurelia joke here:

Steven Universe

AS A FULL-BLOWN STEVEN UNIVERSE AND SHE-RA STAN, THIS CONVERSATION IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME:

Supergirl

Azie Tesfai started a cooking IG account! I have gotten a lot of joy from watching her recipe stories so I am glad she will be putting them all in one place, while continuing to center BLM activism on her main page.

Umbrella Academy

Who is into our newest Netflix couple?

Wynonna Earp

Well, Wynonna Earp certainly had the queer fandom talking this week!

Showrunner Emily Andras spoke with TVLine and gave us more behind-the-scenes details on that scene:

Also, the song playing during that scene was written by a queer artist, which is important.

And that’s it for Queer Beats this week! Always thorough, always professional, never random.

About NikkiT

Nikki has always known two contradictory things to be true: queer TV can save lives and queer female cop/agent characters will be the death of all of us (looking at you Officer Haught, Director Danvers, Detective Sawyer, and Sameen Shaw). Her first dive into fan content was when she ran a secret Xanga blog dedicated to pictures of Lorelai Gilmore in the 7th grade. She has never looked back.
